Subaru Diagnosis & Trouble shooting

“We’ll diagnose & fix any Subaru problem!”

Modern Subaru cars have evolved complex electrical management systems and are highly technical. From the seat belt restraint system to the engine management system your Subaru is electronically controlled, with over 90 specific Subaru codes used to diagnose faults. These sophisticated systems demand specialised diagnostic equipment to identify faults. We have skillfull Subaru mechanics and the latest Subaru diagnostic equipment, enabling us to offer the most accurate and efficient Subaru service possible. The code might tell us where the problem is, and our comprehensive knowledge of the systems associated with the problem area allows us to accurately determine the best course of action, to fix the fault and prevent recurrence. Of course, Subaru error/fault finding is not only computer based and with over 18 years of Subaru troubleshooting and diagnosing experience our staff have the know-how to quickly diagnose your Subaru engine problems, whether they are electronic or mechanical.

Subaru Engine Ignition Misfire


Sometimes a Subaru engine might hesitate before accelerating, or misfire either regularly or intermittently. This can be very slight, something you hear in the exhaust rather than feel, or something more dramatic, where the engine seems to switch off entirely for a split second. Or perhaps your car loses power and chugs along, a sure sign that one or more cylinders are no longer making power. You can’t just cross you fingers and hope these problems with fix themselves. They will only get worse. A misfiring engine will lead to other, perhaps more serious problems.

There are a number of possible causes for such misfires, including faulty spark plugs, faulty or poorly connected direct ignition coils or leads, or dirty/malfunctioning fuel injectors. With modern Suabrus and their integrated electronic systems, causes can number in the hundreds. To accurately diagnose and rectify these types of problems often requires use of specialised electronic tools to download and interpret fault codes.

Whatever the reason your Liberty, Legacy, Impreza, WRX, STI, Forester, Tribeca, Exiga or BRZ is misfiring, All Drive Subaroo has the know-how and the tools to efficiently find and fix it

Subaru Management Malfunction Codes

The engine light on your Subaru Liberty, Legacy, Impreza, WRX, STI, Forester, Tribeca, Exiga or BRZ might come on for a number of reasons. Owners faced with an engine light will usually try to find the problem in the owner’s manual. But this manual is very broad and doesn’t have the detail required to help with diagnosis. The problem could be any one of 90 possibilities, from defective sensor to possible imminent engine failure owing to lack of oil pressure to vital parts. An engine light on could be serious, and you should bring the car to a service center as soon as possible, where the Subaru Select Monitor (SSM) can be used to find and identify the error codes that will lead to accurate diagnosis.

Not all general service centers however have the know-how to accurately interpret these codes. Accessing the on-board computers with our SSM retrieves codes indicating which system or systems have issues. Because ADS has the most up-to-date diagnostic equipment, and the best pool of Subaru expertise in the country, we can quickly decipher computer trouble shooting codes as the first part of the diagnostic process. These codes tell us where to start our inspection. Our highly qualified Subaru experts will quickly track and fix all computer/sensor related problems on your Subaru.
